Jabotinsky is Not on That Wall

This is at the main entrance square to the Mount Scopus campus of the Hebrew University, Jerusalem. The institution's founders:

From right to left is Judah Leib Magnes, Albert Einstein, Chaim Weizmann, Berthold Feivel, Martin Buber and Zvi Hermann Shapira.

Ze'ev Jabotinsky is not included.

He was a member of the Preparatory Commission established by the Zionist Congress in 1913 to move the project to fruition.  He was in charge of the work in Russia: canvassing, lecturing and raising funds.  He demanded not a research center but a real school, especially for the Jews suffering from the policy of numerus clausus and an education institute with a very practical-oriented course of studies.  

Oh, he objected to high salaries.

Rewriting history.

Excluding any one right-of-center.
